Wanted to eat here because previous visits were good. Walked in with lots of dirty tables. Sat down and waiter was only remotely interested in waiting on us. Menu small. Moved to Turtle Bay, which we loved.

Loved the grilled shrimp, Margaritas, chips, and live entertainment! Will definitely return. A lively place with great service and feet in the sand ambiance!

The food here is just average. The service is fine. The bathroom is terrible. The best thing about the place is the super-strong margaritas.

Not sure. They seemed to be closed in the morning, and we have dined there fairly late (around 8-9 PM). We have never needed reservations. Hope that helps.
